2. “神同在的喜樂The Joy of God’s Presence"

西番雅書Zephaniah 3:9-20, 12/07/19

前言PREFACE: 西番雅的意思是,主有穩藏或保護.”之意。 經專注於大多數西番雅的預言,無論在上帝的審判或在猶太國,他的名字傳達了上帝對祂信實的子民的特別關照。The name Zephaniah means “The Lord has hidden/protected.” Though the focus of most of Zephaniah’s prophecies is on God’s judgment on Judah and the nations, his name conveys God’s special care for His faithful people. 當神在我們當中帶給了我們救贖,潔淨我們和喜樂。預備要有喜樂必知道喜樂是來自於耶穌,這彌賽亞住在我們的生命中。God’s presence among us brings redemption, purification, and joy. To anticipate the joy that comes when redemption and purification from the Messiah (Jesus) comes into our lives.

 

上週Last Week我們發現神設計與我們的關係,意旨我們的生命是活在愛神與愛人。We discovered that God desires a relationship with us. It means living a life of love for God and others.

 

這週This Week:我們將看到耶穌,這彌賽亞帶來了我們生命的救贖,潔淨,與喜樂。We will look at how Jesus, the Messiah, came to bring redemption, purity, and joy to our lives.

 

1. 真實的敬拜: 西番雅書 3:9-10                            1. True Worship: Zephaniah 3:9-10

   9.  那時、我必使萬民用清潔的言語、            好求告我耶和華的名 同心合意地事奉我。

10. 祈禱我的、就是我所分散的民、必從    古實河外來、給我獻供物。

9.     "Then will I purify the lips of the peoples, that all of them may call on the name of the LORD and serve him shoulder to shoulder.

10.  From beyond the rivers of Cush my worshipers, my scattered people, will bring me offerings..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

解經: 西番雅 3:9-10,  

神要潔淨人的口,統一語言,這樣   祂在列國的百姓才可以和諧的敬拜祂。在新天新地埵P一種語言。       過去因建巴別塔混亂了的語言要反正過來 (參考創十一章)神淨化我們的心,      也要清潔我們口中的言語。

                

 

 

2. 耶路撒冷的改觀:

    西番雅書 3: 11-13

 

11. 那日你必不因你一切得罪我的事、自覺羞愧.因為那時我必從你中間除掉矜誇高傲之輩、你也不再於我的聖山狂傲。

12. 我卻要在你中間、留下困苦貧寒的民.他們必投靠我耶和華的名。

13. 以色列所剩下的人、必不作罪孽、不說謊言、口中也沒有詭詐的舌頭.而且喫喝躺臥、無人驚嚇。

 

 

解經:西番雅書 3: 11-13, 西番雅正式報告上帝的復興那一天,祂要使耶路撒冷改觀。祂要釋放這城市過去反對上帝的罪。先知已提早預期這城將填滿著一些不爭權、謙恭的心,專住信任上帝的地方。這個新團體將會有免不義、免欺騙、或免虛偽的演說。他們將住著平安的和滿足的生活,因他們有神的照顧、供應、與安全。

 

              上帝對我們的要求是我們這些教會的會員的品格要標準,並由西番雅擬定計劃,以復興耶路撒冷城。這是上帝的恩典已經為我們赦罪。當我們生命中實實在在的有虔敬的行為並信靠神,並在世間提高正義與誠實就成為了上帝的子民,我們發現這些基本的生活方式,是在馬太福音的五章:3-12節之耶穌在山上教導祂的門徒的 (山上寶訓)

 

3. 呼召喜樂: 西番雅書3:14-17:

經文: 14 錫安的民哪、應當歌唱 色列阿、應當歡呼。耶路撒冷的民哪、應當滿心歡喜快樂。15耶和華已經除去你的刑罰、趕出你的仇敵       以色列的王耶和華在你中間、你必不再懼怕災禍。16 當那日、必有話向耶路撒冷說、不要懼怕。錫安哪、不要手軟。17 耶和華你的 神、是施行拯救、大有能力的主、他在你中間必因你歡欣喜樂、默然愛你、且因你喜樂而歡呼。

 

 

解經: 西番雅書3:14-17,

主自己將會收回審判的手,除滅     

以色列的敵人。祂更要來往於祂的

百姓中間,賜他們喜樂。我們若苦

心追求快樂,卻停止與神的交通,

就犯了罪了。要知道神是唯一使

我們快樂的指出讓神與我們同在,

我們便有快樂。我們要忠心的跟隨

祂,服從祂的命令,這樣,神就會

我們歡呼歌唱。如您想快樂,就

服從神,靠近那喜樂的泉源吧!

 

4. 快活的歸回:

    西番雅書3:18-20

18 那些屬你、為無大會愁煩、因你擔當羞辱的、我必聚集他們。 19 那時、我必罰辦一切苦待你的人、又拯救你瘸腿的、聚集你被趕出的.那些在全地受羞辱的、我必使他們得稱讚、有名聲。20那時、我必領你們進來、聚集你們.我使你們被擄之人歸回時、就必使你們在地上的萬民中有名聲、得稱讚。這是耶和華說的。  

 

 

 

解經: 西番雅書3:18-20,

西番雅總結他的預言有上帝的應許, 祂將百姓流亡者帶回家園。上帝將使所有暴壓的離開,準備他們的地使他們快活的歸回。西番雅預想被上帝引回的百姓將與全世界的人,都會很榮幸這地方的。

 

 

西番雅叮嚀我們,上帝期望我們全球的人都聽到、也看到祂的作為。這僅僅發生在我們生命中的見證,喜於顯現出祂救贖的見證。

 

再者,經上帝的救贖工作,我們尊敬祂,並非為了要榮耀自己,而是為榮耀祂的聖名。

耶穌的命令你將成了我的見證人  (參考使徒行傳一章八節).

 

5. 結論:

 1) 真實的敬拜: 3:9-10, 真實的敬拜對上帝的子民是很重要的 (基本是包括唱歌、奉獻、團契認知,並包括潔淨與醫治。)

 2) 耶路撒冷的改觀: 3:11-13, 11節的謙恭,與第13節的明晰,必在日常生活中尊主為大。

 3) 呼召喜樂: 3:14-17, 西番雅的意象是為當時,但我們也能同樣的用在今日的教會中以耶穌為主的意象 (3:17)

 4) 快活的歸回: 3:18-20,

上帝幫助我們得自由 (19) 得醫治 (19), 團圓 (20), 認知 (20)   興隆和茂盛freedom (20).

Commentary: Zephaniah 3:9-10, God will purify lips and unify language so that all His people from all nations will be able to              worship Him in unison. In the new earth, all believers will speak the same language; the confusion of languages at the tower of Babel will be reversed (Genesis 11). God will purify our hearts, so that the words coming from our lips will be pure as well.

 

 2. Jerusalem’s Transformation:   Scriptures Reading: Zephaniah 3:11-13,  

     11 On that day you will not be put to shame for all the wrongs you have done to me, because I will remove from this city those who rejoice in their pride. Never again will you be haughty on my holy hill.

     12 But I will leave within you the meek and humble, who trust in the name of the LORD.

     13 The remnant of Israel will do no wrong; they will speak no lies, nor will deceit be found in their mouths. They will eat and lie down and no one will make them afraid."

 

   Commentary: Zephaniah announced that on the day of God’s restoration, He would transform Jerusalem. God would release the city from the guilt of its past deeds of sin against God. The prophet anticipated that the city would be occupied by the humble and the powerless who place their trust in God. This new community will be free from injustice, falsehood, and deceptive speech. They will live a peaceful and satisfied life because of divine care, provision, and security.

 

           God’s desire for us is that we, the members of His church, mirror the characteristics of the restored city of Jerusalem envisioned by Zephaniah. We have been released from the guilt of our sin by the grace of God. We truly become God’s people in the world when we live a life of humility and dependence on God and promote justice and truthfulness on earth. We find the foundations of this way of life in Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount (see in particular the beatitudes in Matthew 5:3-12).

 

3. A Call to Rejoice : Zephaniah 3:14-17, 14 Sing, O Daughter of Zion; shout aloud, O Israel! Be glad and rejoice with all your heart, O Daughter of Jerusalem!15 The LORD has taken away your punishment, he has turned back your enemy. The LORD, the King of Israel, is with you; never again will you fear any harm.16  On that day they will say to Jerusalem, "Do not fear, O Zion; do not let your hands hang limp.17 The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing."

.

 

Commentary: Zephaniah 3:14-17,

The Lord himself will remove his hand of

 judgment, disperse Israel’s enemies, and

come to live among his people. He will give

them gladness. We sin when we pursue

happiness by cutting ourselves off from

fellowship with God-the only One who can

make us truly happy. Zephaniah points

out that gladness results when we

allow God to be with us, we do that by

faithfully following him and obeying his

commands. Then God rejoices over us

with singing. If you want to be happy

draw close to the source of happiness by

obeying God.

 

4. A Great Homecoming: Scripture:

        Zephaniah 3:18-20,

18 "The sorrows for the appointed feasts I will remove from you; they are a burden and a reproach to you. 19 At that time I will deal with all who oppressed you; I will rescue the lame and gather those who have been scattered. I will give them praise and honor in every land where they were put to shame.20 At that time I will gather you; at that time, I will bring you home. I will give you honor and praise among all the peoples of the earth when I restore your fortunes before your very eyes," says the LORD.

 

Commentary: Zephaniah 3:18-20, Zephaniah concluded his prophecies with a promise from God that He would restore His exiled people and bring them to their homeland. God will prepare the land for their return by removing all oppressive powers from the land. Zephaniah anticipated that God’s restored people would enjoy an honored place among all the peoples of the earth.

 

Zephaniah reminds us that God expects His work to be heard and seen throughout the earth. This can happen only through our bearing witness to His salvation we enjoy in our life.

 

Furthermore, the honor God gives us through His salvation work is not for our self-glorification, but for the glory of His name. “You will be my witnesses” is Jesus’ command to all who bear His name                (Acts 1:8).

 

5.Conclusions:

 1) True Worship: 3:9-10, Worship is   so important for God’s people Elements include singing, bringing offerings, sense of community, but also purity and healing.)

 2)  Jerusalem’s Transformation: 3:11-13, Both humility (v. 12) and transparency (v. 13) be needed in a life of worship before God?   

 3) A Call to Rejoice :  3:14-17, Zephaniah’s vision was for the nation of Judah, but we also know that this same vision could speak to the church under Jesus Christ today due to the prophetic proclamation of Zephaniah 3:17.

     4) A Great Homecoming: 3:18-20,

God will help us full of freedom (v. 19) healing (v. 19), reconciliation (v. 20), recognition (v. 20) and flourishing (v. 20).
